Embarrassing question time: How do you lot cope with numb bum syndrome after riding for a long time? I dug out the exercise bike this-evening and wound it up to what felt like the normal resistance of a flat road. I've been doing 25 minutes (or a little less) each way to and from work, 3 or so times a week for the past 18 months, so I thought I'd be OK on the nice smooth exercise bike..... WRONG! I spent 65 minutes going at a good pace and felt great. My heart rate was less than 110 and my legs felt like I'd just walked down the garden. I could have gone on for a lot longer (although I'd hit my target), but my bum was absolutely killing me The saddle is a bit softer than my bike, so maybe that's a factor? Has anyone else had this trouble and how do you cope? Is it just a case of getting used to it?
